Frequently Asked Questions

If appropriate, we perform sleep studies on our patients at our fully accredited sleep medicine facilities. Typically, the patient sleeps a full night under observation, and the findings are analyzed by our specialists. DPSC is also equipped to perform sleep studies during the day and in the patient’s home in some cases.
  • Your family or bed partner complains of severe snoring and/or notices that you stop breathing for short periods of time when asleep.
  • You consistently feel sleepy throughout the day because of poor-quality sleep.
  • You wake in the night coughing or choking.
  • You have trouble getting to sleep, getting back to sleep after waking in the night, or both.
Sleep apnea is a common disorder that can be very serious. In sleep apnea, your breathing stops or gets very shallow while you are sleeping. Each pause in breathing typically lasts 10 to 20 seconds or more. These pauses can occur 20 to 30 times or more an hour. It is typically accompanied by severe snoring.
Not necessarily. Not everyone who snores loudly has sleep apnea, and not everyone with sleep apnea snores. Poor-quality sleep and stoppage of breathing are more sure signs of sleep apnea, and should be evaluated by a specialist through a sleep study.
Untreated sleep apnea can increase the chance of having high blood pressure and even a heart attack or stroke. Untreated sleep apnea can also increase the risk of diabetes and the risk for work-related accidents and driving accidents due to prolonged fatigue.

Patients come to us with symptoms such as shortness of breath, persistent cough, and wheezing. Smokers, those with a family history of lung problems, and those that live or work around polluted air are at higher risk of serious respiratory problems, so these people should seek specialist help even for minor problems. You can also speak to your general practitioner, who can refer you to us based on their findings. Your doctor can find referral forms here.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease in which the lungs are damaged, making it hard to breathe. In COPD, the airways — the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs — are partly obstructed, making it difficult to get air in and out. Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of COPD. Most people with COPD are smokers or former smokers. Breathing in other kinds of lung irritants, like pollution, dust, or chemicals, over a long period of time may also cause or contribute to COPD.
Fortunately, COPD is not contagious and cannot be caught or transmitted. Unfortunately, the damage to lungs that causes COPD is permanent. This makes accurate diagnosis and effective, expert care all the more important to limit further damage and mitigate chronic symptoms.
